AT ST. THOMAS’ GRAVE.
NOTES ABOUT THE GREAT DOUBTER
AND HOW HE DIED.
The Apostle of India, the Cave Where
He Lived, and the Plain Where He
Preached—How the King’s Palace
Was Built For Eternity.
From the Chicano New*.
In British India, March 81, 1887.
The king would build, so a legend says.
The very finest of palaces.
He sent for St. Thomtts. a builder rare.
And bade him to build them a wonder fair.
"Build well. O builder good and so great.
And add to the glory of my estate.'
Do you know-w here the doubting apostle,
St. Thomas died, and was buried J He who
said: "Except I see in His hands the print
of the nails, and put my finger into the print,
of the nails, and thrust my hand into Hi*,
side, I will not believe. ”
Subsequently at a meeting with closed
doors, when Jesus stood suddenly an appa
rition among His mourning diaciples, He
said to Thomas: “Reach here your hand.
Thrust it into my side.” After Thomas had
satisfied himself Jesus said: “Because you
have seen me, you have believed. Blessed
are they that, have not seen and yet have
believed” —John, chapters xx. and xxi. In
the Bible record this apostle was therefore
given the title of Didymus, which is the
Greek of doubter, a skeptical man. At this
present day a Methodist hymn says:
Oh. where is doubting Thomas?
Safe in the promised laud
Gone up at the feet of Jesus.
Safe in the promised land,
By and by we will go and see Him,
Safe in the promised land.
There we will sing and shout together,
There we will sing and shout forever,
Safe in the promised land.
Many a time I have in my childhood helped
to ring out the cadences and repetitions of
that chorus, not forseeing that in Southern
India should I surely look down into the now
vacant gi*ave where that apostle lay buried
1,300 years. I did not dream that on a sul
trv tropic, morning I should walk over miles
of the ground that was part, of his mission
ary field, and should follow the road where
his followers walked bearing his body after
the martyrdom; that I should hear a chorus
of the Indian ocean surf roaring and foam
ing and breaking upon the shore while an
Indian convert to tnc religion of Christ and
the twelve apostles told me the tradition of
Bt. Thomas' grave.
Excursions within the torrid zone must be
made early in the morning or else when the
sun is again low in the afternoon. This lit
tle tour had been mentioned the day before,
but evidently nobody was remembering it.
This was to be my last day in Madras for
the present. Not being able to use the
speech of the country to bargain for a vehi
cle, the sun already on his upward round, an
urgent case, I started off with only a spread
umbrella as my companion. Not anticipat
ing the blistered toes which lasted for a
week—but what of that, when I learned so
much, and found It so interesting and en
gaging that I did not know of my toes’ con
dition until the next day —I crossed the Adi
gar river, and followed the pleasant road
which is the landward winding and south
erly end of a several miles drive and prom
enade, of which lam told that the world
has truly few or none other such. Solid
great public buildings within gardens of
trees and shrubbery make one side. On the
other rolls against the shore the celebrated
dangerous surf of Madras in three consecu
tive parallel silvered lines.
Madras isa city built in groups, with semi
rural acres between. In the quarter called
“St. Thome” a church is built over the ven
erated place where St. Thomas was turned
and where his body lay for 1,200 years. In
one of the ante-rooms'of the church the lift
ing of a trap-door discloses a hole which has
been empty ’SOO yeans. It has become 13 feet
deep by two causes—a change in the level
of the surrounding land during the 1,800
years since the apostle was there interred,
but more it has been deepened by pilgrims
who prized the very soil that was the bed
where St.| Thomas’ body rested for more
than a thousand years," and each pilgrim
carried away one handful of sand as a talis
In a locked cupboard in the same ante
room is preserved the broken-off point of
the spear that was the instrument of his
martyrdom on Dec. 21, A. D. 68. The In
dian priest who told me most of the details
gave them as traditions only, adding that in
India tradition is peculiarly a method of
tramsmitting history. St. Thomas’ apos
tolic work is told in' a poem of fifty lines
translated and paraphrased from the Latin
of the mediaeval Christian fathers.
‘Build well, uor spare of my wealth to show
A prouder palace than mortals know.’
The king took leave of his kingdom thenr
And wandered far from the haunts of men.
St. Thomas the king s great treasure spent
In worthier way than bis master meant.
He clad the naked, the hungry fed,
The oil of gladness around him shed;
He Messed them all with the ample store
As never a king's wealth blessed before.
The king came back to his well-spent gold
But no new palace did he behold.
In terrible he swore and said
That the builder’s folly should cost his head.
St. Thomas and St. Bartholomew were the
apostles of the far East. They came together
to India, after the Saviour’s fast command:
“Go ye into all the world and preach the
gospel to every creature.” Of the (Minted
Hindu peninsula the west side is called “the
Malabar coast” and the east is called “the
Coromandel coast.” Bartholomew took the
Malabar side. It is rainy and mountain
ous. St. Thomas took the Madrasian plain.
It is dry and sunny. They itinerated a great
deal and founded many churches. St.
Thomas’ sermons are told of to this day as
being delivered on both the Malalar and
the Coromandel coasts ;for Bartholomew and
Thomas used to “exchange," I suppose like
Two isolated mounts, three miles apart,
rise out of the great plain on whose sea edge
stands Madras. Each is called “St. Thomas'
mount," but as, by comparison, one is
big and the other is less, the one is generally
called at Madras “Bt. Thomas’ mount’’
and the other is called me
“Little mount.” They are properly termed
mount, and not monutain, because Doth are
so small as to be easily reconnoitered; like
some Mississippi river cliffs if they were
suddenly detached from their surroundings.
Southern Hindustan has many such. They
are supposed to be geological monuments:
made hy the wear und tear ot the storms of
ages, slowly disintegrating and washing
away the ridge or other earth formations
that once were of their top level.
In the “Tuttle mount” is the cave where
ThomasDidymus lived. There are indent
ure that were made by his knees in his fre
quent prayers, and by his hands in his also
frequent prostrations. The cave has a crev
ice through which he got out when the per
secutors came. Being then an old man who
could not run fast, he was directly overtaken
mid was fatally pierced with a spear.
“The Big mount” lias a cliff, with draw
ings on it that were made by Kt. Thomas.
Upon the large rook he scratches 1 the out-
Unoeof a large cross and the ligure of the
virgin mother and a dove, emblematic of
the Holy Hpirit. After ho was left for dead
with painful exertions he managed to reach
this favorite spot, where, at the foot of the
cams, lie died.
His friends caught up his body and by the
light of the stars and the moon, which is
wonderfully bright here, they lovingly lore
the lifeless likeness of their teacher six miles
to this place by the seashore, now in Madras
city, and buried it. This was then a wild
place and the little village and the whole
region here and all around as far out as the
mounts was called Maiiapurum (Mylapoo
Kt. Thomas here rested in peace for 1,300
years. There came a time when India was
overrun by oonquerors and dcsecrutors: and

might happen, dug up his treasure bones and

The poem does not mention the name or
country of the King for whom Wt. Thomas
built the heavenly Jialace, but legendary his

My priestly informant gave me most, of
the main events in outline, hut ho did not
mention many dates. He did not tell me
of the other Wt. Thomas’ church in Goa
which has the lxxiy, hut I have learned that
since from Dr. Huiiter. The manuscript was
written by a chronicler named Alohas, who,
when he was young, was a disciple of Wt.
Thomas. Abrtlns, when he wrote the his
tory, was living in Babylon—the celebrated
Babylon of ancient history. He was a
Christian minister, and had charge of all the
churches in that part of Asia, tlis literary
work—ten volumes—was done in one of the
oriental tongues. But it was translated in
to Latin by the well-known Julius Afri
canus. In the Latin, which is the only lan
guage any of us would l>e likely to under
stand, it is in part entitled "Andiae Baby

Julius Africanus’ translation was fortu
nately found just ten years after the pre
cious dust of the martyred apostle was dis
covered on the Coromandel coast ; where,
though lying side by side with Ids royal
friend, every circumstance existed for identi
fication; the martyred aaint being greater
than the King.
This ancient manuscript tells us how Wt.
Thomas come to go to India and to naan his
old age ill the quiet retirement of Madras.
It was only a sudden attack of persecution
that terminated bis life. He lived there very
pleasantly. This is the story of the manu
The fame of Jesus had reached the far
East, which is a laud of magic, even to this
day. “Black magic” and “white magic” I
am often hearing of, and 1 am even told in
wbat provinces the "black magicians” are

to be a great magician; one of those magi
who could do or supply anything.
King Gondaphorus sent to Jesus by a mes

He thought that, he would thereby have the
finest palace in India, this part of Asia lieing
then, and up to a very late date, divided in
to several kingdoms, having rich kings who
lived very grandly. Jesus furnished hint

When four days dead, as the legend reads,
He arose to humanity’s life and needs;
From slrep of the dust he strangely woke.
And thus to his brother, the king, he spoke:
“I have been to paradise, oh, my king!
And have heard the heavenly angels sing,
And there I saw, by the gates of gold,
A palace finer than tongue has told;
Its walls and towers are lifted high
In beautiful grace to the bending sky!
‘lts glories there In that radiant place
Shone forth like a smile from the dear Ixtrd’s
An angel said it was builded there
By the good St. Thomas, with love and care,
For our fellow-men, and that it should lie
Thy palace of peace through eternity.”
The king this vision pondered well.
Till he took St. Thomas from dungeon cell
And said: “Oh, Builder! he most is wise,
"Who huildeth ever for paradise.”
After this, St. Thomas became very popu
lar. All the kings believed in him and re
cognized him as a true saint: and he jour
neyed protected by the scepter and under
the royal white umbrella of King Meo Ileus,
with a hand of music and i. procession, to
the Madras country, where he said good-by
to all pmud pomp, found a comfortable cave
in which he long lived quietly and plainly,
and Anally was slain.
The dark Indian patre, a man of keen face
and tiolished manners clothed in the eccle
siastical gown of the Roman church, at the
close of the narration agnin candidly assured
me that it was wholly traditional; that in
the lapse of ages and the mutations of gov
ernment and circumstances no point of the
story could be proved, and I venture to say
that Doubting Thomas himself would be the
last to believe it.
It belongs only to the critical analyzer of*
time-eaten manuscripts and eomplleatcd le
gends to interfere with the regular contin
uity of a story and the consistency of de
Rut the fact is that, modern Christian mis
sionaries, the earliest being the Portuguese,
in A. 1). 1600, found the knowledge anil wor
ship of Christ no new thing in India; and
that up to the last, ten years the remnants of
the ancient “Syrian church” had more na
tive adherents than all the Protestant sects
in Hindustan put together.
At the beginning of the Christian era
Buddhistic philosophy, then supreme in
Southern India, did not oppose the introduc
tion of a religion whose characteristics were
humanity and self-sacrifice; while north of
the Himalayas Christianity and Buddhism
a thousand years were side by side and inter
laced. From the flfth to the fifteenth cen
tury they formed the two intelligent relig
ions of Central Asia.
Ask Dr. Hunter. Ho will tell you that the
whole subject of early Christanity, from
Cyprus to China, has been treated with ex

For fully nine years I hart catarrh. For five years I hart it in the very worst, form, how ob
noxious that is I neert not recount. I was under treatment of one of the most celebrated eye. ear
an<l throat physicians in the United States, but he was unable to do mo any good. In despair I
resorted to numerous patent medicines that I saw advertised, but with no avail. Finally, about
six months ago, I began to take S. S. S. in sheer desperation, but with little hope and no faith in it.
But to-day I am comparatively well: indeed, I have been so benefited by the S. S. S. that, although
skeptical of its merits, I am compelled by the benefit I have derived from it, to testify to its un
questioned curative powers in catarrh cases. The best compliment 1 can pay it is that I have re
